Depends on what you want to do when it gets windy. 155 as your smallest board is not small. At 50 liters over your body weight in kg, that is not a high wind board for you. 155 will carry 8.5 and 7.3, ...

Really enjoy my 2019 Honda Odyssey. A passenger can ride in right front seat while extra long stuff like 350cm Kona OD fits on its side between the two front seats, the stern supported by the console ...

Don't most or all minivans still accommodate a 4X8 piece of plywood? Its diagonal is 9 feet, which would accommodate most big sails lying flat on the floor.
My 2014 Dodge does. And I can fit two shee ...

Well if David Ezzy recommends 'bagging out' a sail his recommendation is inferior to mine, and every other competent windsurfer. That said, I am fairly sure David Ezzy recommends a difference of some ...

A pro mentioned a good freeride board around 140 -160 L. Never gave recommendations.
As far as new, the Starboard Carve comes to mind, but it's quite short, so it depends on your skills. I wouldn't w ...

Bagging sails out and reducing downhaul is just bad (outdated) advice, that will actually do the opposite of what is suggested.
I don't think so, but I suppose it's possible that David Ezzy's recom ...

As for non-removable consoles (I've never encountered that in a minivan, and would not accept it), how about a refined cabinetry-making version of a chainsaw or pullsaw?

When I bought my Dodge Grand Minivan in 2015, I chose the model that had the removable center console. Allows me to put a 10’ 10” Sail/SUP inside the van no problem. I liked that the old criteri ...
